mccain who would have been arrested for assaulting secretary of state hillary clinton. and third, i kept thinking about what a glorious time for the pentagon to announce it was lifting the ban on women in combat because if there was any proof that women are ready for combat, it was watching hillary clinton. in front of those senators yesterday. i thought she was magnificent! andself things about this hearing. but the first one we gotta say again, it's disgusting what the republicans have been doing. remember mitt romney started this, in the middle of the campaign, when we have a terrorist attack against the united states. it was just like 9-11 in the sense this was american soil, i don't care, benghazi is in libya but it is american soil. american consulate. terrorists attacked us. what do we do after 9-11, we all pulled together and said we're going to get those s.o.b.s. what did the republican party do after benghazi? we're going to get president obama. we're going to get hillary clinton. we're going to get susan rice. started by mitt romney. picked up by john mccain. ever since t
there. and her demeanor in general angered john mccain. >> the answers, frankly that you have given this morning are not satisfactory to me. the american people deserve to know answers. and they certainly don't deserve false answers. and the answers that were given the american people on september 15th by the ambassador of the united nations were false. >> bill: once again secretary clinton didn't respond, allowing senator mccain's comments to float in the air. it should also be noted not one, not one democrat asked mrs. clinton the tough question. now, come on. that's appalling. are you guys looking out for the folks or what? secretary clinton will leave her job as soon as john kerry is confirmed as the new secretary of state, which should be in early february. but going forward, mrs. clinton doesn't really have to worry much about libya. it's clear americans are not holding her accountable. in a if new fox news poll 59% of americans approve of secretary clinton's job performance. just 29 percent disapprove. clearly the folks think she has been effective running the state departmen
clinton was side by side with senator mccain to introduce kerry as the best choice to follow in her footsteps. >> he's a determined and effective representative of the united states. has been as a senator, will be as secretary. >> and things were cordial enough moments ago. senator mccain was still blasting clinton for her testimony yesterday. >> she really didn't answer any questions, her response to senator johnson about whether there was a spontaneous demonstration or not, saying it didn't matter, it didn't matter how these people died? that was stunning. that was really stunning. of course it matters. >> all right, let's dive right in and say good morning to our thursday political power. mark ginsburg, joi ann reed, ron reagan, and republican strategist susan del percio. it's great to have you all here. as we speak right now, the confirmation hearing of john kerry is taking place. started roughly after 10:00 a.m. and this is a big difference of what we saw yesterday, ironically enough, this is the senate committee that kerry technically still chairs, and he made a joke about tha
complaining about this at all? >> stephanie: thank you. and john mccain was just shaking his fist and i'm glad to see -- oh i'm just fighting with myself! >> well he can be slightly forgiven he had to endure another inauguration from the man who beat him. i was not sitting too far from the president during the inauguration and he was sitting next to orrin hatch, and he was wearing an orange shirt, and mccain was wearing only aviator glasses. >> stephanie: all right. rush limbaugh. >> it was like a pukefest. it was right out of banana republic. i have never seen gravelling sucking up, butt kissing, hillary clinton's testimony. and she lost her cool at one point. by the way she opened up crying, which is part of the script. >> stephanie: human. oh it's scripted. >> yes. >> it's part of the clinton script. >> don't you guys know anything yet? part of the skriment was her illness and concussion and when that got proved wrong, it had to be her emotions are part of the script. >> stephanie: karl you are good when you can fake a blood clot you are a very accomplishes actress, app
, indeed, more than 500. there was a point where i think we all wished john mccain had won because he made a few -- he made a lot fewer promises. we took the 500, and for the past but for years, in a product that i think is unprecedented in american journalism, we have been following them, calling people, tracking these things, digging into the budget, and really coming up with the definitive report card on how president obama has done in his first term. host: here is the obameter from politifact. 47% of promises kept, the total in the category for those pledges being kept or even in the works is 72%, 73%. guest: it is really a surprise, i think. it is hard to compare to anything because we did not apply the same methodology to previous presidents. but i have got to say, when we saw over the holidays that it was that high, we were really struck that, particularly in an era of dysfunction and gridlock in congress, that president obama had fulfilled or at least partially fulfilled so many -- as you said, 73%. we will talk more about why that is, but i think if you talk to experts who have do
branches. apparently their feelings were hurt. senator mccain says quote, i would have liked to have seen some more outreach. senator thune says he wasn't doing the kind of outreach he needs to do. senator collins says i had hoped his speech would be a little less partisan. senator portman says he missed an opportunity to talk about where we can find common ground. common ground, senator? republicans spent four years not compromising. and not wanting to be on any ground. common or not. with this president. and now they accuse him of not compromising? president obama has learned the lessons of four years of power politics and how to make republicans ied logs sit up and listen. >> medicare and medicaid and social security. these do not zap our initiative. they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> you got that, tea partiers? the president went right after the cynical romney/ryan republican view of the world. makers versus takers. calling out the extremists who refuse to listen to the american people. >> we cann
.c. in january. john mccain. >> jennifer: john mccain talking with dianne feinstein, i'm sure about gun control. cutting a deal right there. >> john: it is rather unseasonably warm today. i'm thankful for that for the folks who are there. >> jennifer: tammy baldwin. >> john: yesterday i was shocked at how warm it was. a lot of folks were expressing confusion as to why the president was sworn in yesterday. the constitution requires, of course, the president be sworn in on january 20th. since federal buildings and courthouses are closed on sunday, the ceremony is still scheduled for today on the 21st which happens to be dr. king's holiday. the president's second term officially began at 12:00 noon eastern time yesterday. >> led by kevin mccarthy. >> jennifer: john dingell. god bless him. longest serving member of congress. over 50 years. his father served in congress, too. he has it in his blood. >> john: this is like the oscars for political. >> macy's day parade coverage. instead of blimps, we have politicos. >> john: what they've done with their careers. i kind of wish the oscars were a bit mo
to salter with the mccain campaign in 2008. and i said, why did you guys go the path you did? mark salter? i said, why don't you go ahead and push a bill where somebody worked here for five years. they could go back to mexico. they could apply. and they could come and have legal status. why didn't you go that route? americans would have supported that. he laughed. he said, because the afl-cio opposed it. and the one senator that was constantly at the forefront of opposing that form of immigration reform was a senator from illinois named barack obama. he carried their water on blocking this pathway to citizenship when he was in the senate. the afl-cio put out a press release yesterday talking about the importance of not compromising on citizenship. so the unions themselves -- there are a lot of cross-currents here. the unions themselves don't want an influx of new workers in america, do they? >> no, they don't. that's one of the reasons this organizing for action, jim messina's full-time job is trying to get the union's in line, but it's going to be hard. it's hard on the democratic side. we'
ceiling. john mccain's decision, i support the decision. i think women are fully qualified to carry out the mission but i want to see the same physical standard requirements. nothing of the like of a change, women would have to fit the same requirements that are in place right now for men. what is your reaction? >> i think they're not too difficult to attain. young people whether they're men or women can quite easily attain the physical standards established for the forces. there are different physical forces for special operations forces, for rangers for s.e.a.l.s and so on. they're more difficult to attain but for infantry, armor, artillery units, i don't think women, young people have any problem whatsoever with them. >> i think it's interesting and people may not realize that women limited and i want to pull up the number. quinnipiac poll, should women be allowed to serve in combat roles? 75% say yes. 22% say no. also limited how far they could rank in the military. >> if you increase the number of women who are in combat roles, in combat units, you're by definition increasing the a
, it almost never moves back and that was a problem for the mccains and even the romneys of this world. however -- when you're the vp, you get one shot to extend. you are defined by the guy above you. so, you get to ride on the previous generation. >> he gets younger. >> he's the youngest guy in this town, too. >> benjamin button. >> i talked to a veteran democratic actrist strategist who has been involved and she told me within 48 hours she got a call from both joe biden and martin omool o'malley about whe you in 2016. dick cheney was not going to run, we knew he was not going to run. you saw his influence in the second bush term go on decline. joe biden is saying he is prepared to run to keep his influence or is he running? >> i think it's hard to know that. i think people forget how important it is in this town, the personal relationships. people talked often enough that obama sometimes can be a and we will appreciate over the next two years in particular what a good retail politician this man is. i don't think anything gets done in this administration without joe biden either in fr
coming in. >> you do not. and senator mccain was there for the inauguration of the man who defeated him. john kerry was there for the inauguration of the man who defeated him. we know that the romneys will not be here today. as we watch, we're looking at the presidential car. and i've read they call it the beast because it is such a fortified machine, the president rides in. and here, he is ready to emerge for his second inauguration. >> and you talk about the day going so quickly again. talking to pierre thomas. this is a day of high anxiety for law enforcement officials. >> the trip to the capitol, many law enforcement officials call it the longest ride or so. we have law enforcement officials at command centers, are manning the surveillance cameras, talking to agents in the field. one source just told me, the only thing going on right now is a man in a tree at garfield circle. and they're trying to talk him down. he's trying to make some kind of political statement. >> that is wonderful to hear. and again, we're watching, we're looking straight through the foyer there, the marble foy
to citizenship. but it's a great start. i'm looking forward to a partner, senator mccain, lin graham and now marco rubio joining the very important debate and the conversation about how we fix this broken immigration system. >> you're going to have an alliance with lindsey graham, senator mccain and senator rubio, you might get some comprehensive immigration reform. >> i hope so. >>> tasteless or tribute? up next, we have some information on the growing controversy behind the very unlikely pairing of fashion models with the superstorm sandy first responders. [ male announcer ] when we built the cadillac ats from the ground up to be the world's best sport sedan... ♪ ...people noticed. ♪ the all-new cadillac ats -- 2013 north american car of the year. ♪ for a limited time, take advantage of this exceptional offer on the all-new cadillac ats. i wish my patients could see what i see. ♪ that over time, having high cholesterol and any of these risk factors can put them at increased risk for plaque buildup in their arteries. so it's even more important to lower their cholesterol, and that's
community? >> well, remember, president bush worked in a bipartisan fashion, john mccain, republican. ted kennedy, the lead sponsor, a democrat, president bush working in concerts 3 years. i would remind you, president obsmga was one of the people in the senate who voted to kill that bipartisan immigration reform, voting for every killer amendment offered up by the labor union. there is an element in the republican party, many of us believing that the issue must be settled. but the question's going to be, will the president work in a bipartisan fashion on this? or will he attempt to use it for partisan gain as he has the last four years? he could have taken this issue off the table in 2009 or 2010. but it wasn't apparently important enough for him to deal with. how will he approach the issue? bipartisan or confrontation? >> on the flip side, joe ogun control, there doesn't seem to be a lot of indication that the president has reached out to the other side on this issue. in fact, all indications are there is going to be this effort to go grassroots and really put the pressure on from the o
mccain and jehmu greene a fox news contributed. thanks for joining us. so the senator mentioned executive orders we need to clarify not one of the 23 actions issued by the president is an actual executive order. however, the white house did issue three presidential memoranda. one, improving availability of relevant executive branch records to the national criminal background system, tracing of firearms in criminal investigations and engaging in research on the causes and prevention of gun violence. what is the difference between a presidential memorandum, not much. did a lot of research on this today. executive orders in all but name. the main difference executive order has to be published, a memorandum only if the president determines they have, quote, general applicability and legal effect. that being said, ford, what chance does the president's gun agenda have? >> not very much background checks. he is easy painting house republicans as obstructionists and we're gloss go over a lot of tensions within the democratic controlled senate. you have senators on the democratic side l

? >> 99% say their money is lost. >> so much for the nra. john nichols as a friend of bill. john mccain fugelsang joins us when we come back. >> this is "the bill press show." [ music ] going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. [ music ] >> heard around the country and seen on current tv this is "the bill press show." >> bill: wow. 33 minutes after the hour. what a great date, friday january 18th. this is the full court press coming to you live from our nation's capitol. that's washington, d.c. >> that's where we are on capitol hill brought to you today by afsmee the largest public employee and healthcare workers' union in the entire country under pre
seated and was watching john mccain in particular, and the lines he applauded for, the lines he did not, you can look at that as portending what is possible on capitol hill. he applauded on a lot of the lines of the deficit and the mention of newtown and other issues, but notably on immigration reform, he just sort of sat there while other members did applaud. whether or not you can read something into that, i am not sure, but it is definitely an opportunity for reaction on the other side. host: to all of these issues we have been addressing the last hour, i want to look at something your colleague wrote in "the washington post." "if the president can reach a broad deal that settles some of the disputes over entitlement spending and tax code and govgiving the government borrowing authority to last through much of the term, he can use that energy to forge a bipartisan, rise on these other big issues to." guest: that is a huge point. one point that ms. mcconnell, republican leader in the senate, has made over and over again is the reason they are using to get them as leverage is they feel
years of public service and testimony. senator john mccain a vocal critic of the obama's administration's response to the attack said clinton's answers left him unsatisfied. >> the american people and the families of these four brave americans still have not gotten the answers that they deserve. >> reporter: secretary clinton connected what happened in benghazi to the rise of al qaeda in mali and the recent terror attack in algeria. right now she's making what may be her final appearance on capitol hill introducing john kerry at his confirmation hearing. he is likely to be asked how he would handle those threats as the next secretary of state. >> margaret brennan thank you. "washington post" columnist david ignatius had written extensively about the engazie attacks. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> we begin with the questions, whether secretary of state took responsibility, answered all the questions and put this behind her? >> she gave a good account of herself, she gave as good as she got. it was an intense session. i think on the sound
means the inside game just sitting down with john mccain and john boehner doesn't work so well on these issues. i think he will make aning a aggressive effort to engage the public. he has taken his campaign organization, obama for america, and turned it into an advocacy group called, organizing for action. i think part of the effort is going to be mobilize public support for his agenda. shepard: it's my understanding the vice president will be walking, there is the first lady, michelle obama. ab stod stoddard is with us. reading all the blogs, what will she be wearing. narrate if if you will. >> she is in combination a tom brown dress. she has a different bells on. j. crew and j. crew shoes. this will go to the national arc kifs immediately after she wears it. she looks absolutely smashing. understated but truly elegant. shepard: she has entered the crypt and come down the stairs. she will be announced as we she walks out. first lady will be followed by the president. let's listen as they make the now traditional walk. this is five inaugurations for me and walking down these st
years of george w. bush, looking at john mccain there was no way in the world democrats are going to not unite behind obama. >> we will always, always remember where we were when barack obama became president of united states. >> [newscaster] look at this crowd. this is the best of american patriotism. >> [rallygoer] my grandmother is 96 years old and she never would have thought it. my mother is 67 years old. and she said in her lifetime she never thought it would happen. >> if there is anyone out there who still doubts that america's a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer. it's been a long time coming. but tonight because of what we did on this day, in this election, at this defining moment, change has come to america. this is our moment. this is our time to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids, to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace, to reclaim the american dream and reaffirm that fundamental
at what a tremendous crowd this is. it just happens to not be as large as the one last time out. john mccain there wearing his shades. and then who is that, orrin hatch in the cowboy hat there? >> i can't quite tell. >> it's either orrin hatch or the lone ranger. >> you know, some of you may be curious about the flags that are hanging on the front of the u.s. capitol. but before we talk about that, here they are, malia and sasha, the president's daughters. malia now 14 years old and about as tall as the first lady, and sasha now 11 years old. that's their grandmother walking behind them, the first lady's mother, marian robinson. let's listen as they're announced. >> a little bit of a walk from where they were being held in the capitol out to the west front of the u.s. capitol. >> but as they go through that door, scott, it is truly the most spectacular sight in all of washington, because the mall opens up right in front of you. you can see all the way down to the lincoln memorial, even past the washington monument. you can see it all there. ronald reagan was the one who decided that they oug
. if they seem dressed fairly lightly, there are some regional -- there's john mccain, dianne feinstein, there's some regional heaters in that area. there are blankets provided, as we heard. andrea mitchell is there. we'll keep alternating between this camera and the white house doorway so we don't miss a thing. and andrea, you're seeing the senate leadership fill in. >> yeah. just as senator kerry is coming in and some of the other senators, let me give you an idea of the schedule. there will be a change of power at the state department, as you know, on wednesday of this week. hillary clinton is going before the senate and the house. she's going to be here today in her role both as a former first lady and as the secretary of state. she's going to be testifying on benghazi on wednesday. on thursday before the committee that he chairs still, senator kerry will be introduced by secretary clinton for his confirmation hearing. we're told then that the vote on senator kerry as secretary of state is expected to glide through. next tuesday, that will take place. and wednesday, there will be the chang
've got some congressional numbers. congress, as john mccain likes to say, when congress is at 14% approval rating, they're down to close relatives and paid staff. >> i want to find the 14%. >> friends and family, that's all. >> 81% disapprove. and then on the republican party, 49% have a negative view of the republican party. just 26% positive. that's their highest negative number since back in 2008, the year president obama first got elected. democrats not doing much better, but better, 38% view the democratic party negatively. so gene, the president's had a pretty good time politically since the election. republicans are starting to figure out how to come back. to the extent republicans have leverage in the upcoming talks, particularly on fiscal issues, where do you think their leverage lies given how unpopular they are and how unpopular congress is? >> well, i think they have less leverage than some people think they have. i mean, i think it would be, frankly, another disaster if republicans try to use the debt ceiling, to force dollar-for-dollar budget reductions. i don't see
. >> alisyn: right. >> obviously, talking about it in front of iowans. >> and john mccain has so humorously pointed out the job of vice-president is sometimes not that rewarding, so if it's not a shoe to the presidency, joe biden has seemed to enjoy it frankly, as you know, got a lot of laughs in the last four years, some intentional, some unintentional and today no different. >> and president obama has given him high profile roles and negotiations with congress that frankly president obama has know the done. he has a much better relationship with members of congress and members on the republican side than president obama does. so, you have to give vice-president biden that and he will likely be used in the upcoming debt ceiling negotiation. >> sure. >> and upcoming fights to come over the sequester and also on the continuing resolution. >> are you surprised bret, three of us on the couch, alisyn using a sports reference, a loose shoe. it caught me by surprise. >> alisyn: i'm unpredictable. >> very unpredictable. >> well, you know what, congratulations, bret you've earned a comp day for wor
't say that. there is john mccain who knows something about losing to barack obama, he did it four years ago. but it strikes me -- i guess i was stuck to the degree that this was an unyielding and compromising of an espousal. i basically thought to myself that it was a poetic version of a speech he would make accepting the nomination of the democratic national convention, saying this is what i want and if i get to be elected, now, he has been elected and inaugurated, this is what i intend to do. bret: what you do is you go general. you articulate widely agreeable themes. there's actually some of the little bit more like the state of the union address specific sites of things that he thinks ought to be done. this was somewhere of a typical inaugural address and you may make general reference to programs but it's usually veiled in such a way that you are not accused of sticking your i in your critics >> we talk about how the party should come together. how they should not talk over each other.
